The Pacific Nations Cup comes to a conclusion this weekend with silverware on the line for the two unbeaten teams USA and Japan who meet in the title decider in Suva tomorrow.
The Eagles are chasing their first Pacific Nations Cup title and a possible all-time high of 11th in the World Rugby Rankings if the beat Japan by more than 15 points.
It is a difficult ask though with the Brave Blossoms in good form on the back of two impressive winds against Fiji and Tonga.
Like the USA, Jamie Joseph's men have rankings history in their sights as a record-equalling ninth place could be theirs if they win and the result of the Rugby Championship match between Argentina and South Africa in Salta falls in their favour.
Tonga chase first win of tournament
Tonga are still chasing their first win of 2019 as they prepare to take on Canada tonight in the World Rugby Pacific Nations Cup in Lautoka, Fiji.
The Ikale Tahi captain Siale Piutau said they learned a lot from their 41-7 drubbing at the hands of Japan.
